Cystic Fibrosis Podcast 53: Adult CF Family Day

Baylor University Medical Center in Houston, Texas held a ground breaking event with the first ever Adult CF Day. This educational event featured Boomer Esiason and Dr. Marcia Katz speaking about how we are “living a medical miracle” with 40% of the CF population being adults and living longer with a better quality of life.

  • Adults with CF are attending college, have careers, and having families.
  • Adults with CF maintain a “positive mental attitude” and keep raising the bar.
  • With the explosion of the adult CF population “transitioning” to an adult program is crucial.
  • Adults with CF are living longer and maintaining a better quality of life.
  • Adults are mentors for younger individuals with CF and their families.
